International Custody/Parental Abduction

International custody disputes and/or parental abduction cases are serious matters that require an understanding of not only applicable state law, but also Federal law, including the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), international law, including the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, and the laws of other countries or jurisdictions relevant to the case. Parental abduction cases often require quick and decisive action, assistance from experts and/or attorneys in other countries and jurisdictions, and an effective and well-executed strategy. Whether or not there is an abduction or other emergency, a case involving international custody issues warrants careful consideration of the relevant facts and potential jurisdictions in which a child, or their parent, may find themselves.
